Repetition (Live on Letterman)

To arrive ahead of its time
Is the fate of the fish washed up on shore
Do you know that it just won't feel right?
'Til we're swallowed up by the tide
Thought he might know better

Hold it to capital lifestyle heights
Got a head full of fever and it feels alright
'Cause I shake my bottle and I suck my swill
And I love how I'm livin' 'cause I caught my fill

But I can't stop thinkin' how it's all gone wrong
And the crack's fully obvious before too long
I've abused my position and it cost my friends
And if the world keeps turnin', I could do it again

What's the matter with your next door neighbor?
I heard he had sex, drugs and danger
But you could kick it with a complete stranger
I think I hear him calling

What's the matter with your next door neighbor?
An act of man, a freak of nature
You could kick it with a complete stranger
I think I hear him calling to talk

Tell the heads it's a walk in the park
If it don't, better hope you can see in the dark
Cover your heart

Hail Mary, watch your life unfold
I'm a man on a mission or so I've been told
I can choose my victims, I can shed my skin
And if the world keeps turnin', I could do it again

But I can't stop thinkin' how it's all gone wrong
And the truth will be obvious before too long
I've abused my position and it cost my friends
If the world keeps turnin', I'ma do it again

What's the matter with your next door neighbor?
I heard he had sex, drugs and danger
But you could kick it with a complete stranger
I think I hear him calling

What's the matter with your next door neighbor?
An act of God, a freak of nature
You could kick it with a complete stranger
I think the curtain's falling down

We lock arms
And walk away unrecognized
We lock arms and spin
Commence our repetition

My repetition, my repetition is this
My repetition, my repetition is this
My repetition, my repetition is this
My repetition, my repetition is this
